Doubtful, but let's hope it was a bad guy.

Blair is where I live. :) Above Cumberland going toward Whitesburg on 119 N.

I have heard that it was an accident that a young man, maybe 14 years of age, was cleaning his gun and it went off and shot his grandfather, but I guess it could have been his dad. It is sad though.

I always found those type of accidents non believable. If you know a weapon well enough to break it down and clean it you know it well enough to make sure it's empty.

Have you seen the ACT scores? It's possible he wasn't smart enough.

After the Virginia news shooting President Obama said it breaks his heart when he hears of these type shootings and that gun crimes are worse than terrorism. Wonder why it doesn't bother him to deal in arms in Libya that ended up costing the lives of Americans, or to allow gun running into Mexico to the Cartel's which ended up costing the lives of Americans?

The media's scared to death on how to handle the Virginia shooting. It's a race based shooting, but this time the shooter is black. What are we banning this time? Where is Obama's outrage at it being race based?

The Carolina shooting was because of racism. This one is the guns fault.

Zero outrage. The KKK should at least release a statement. :shock:

the black shooter was sick, just like the white church shooter. both appeared to be racist but it was a sickness that caused them to shoot. both deserve the cure...death.

The news stations are not calling it a hate crime. Well other than FOX News.
